After the war, there was a need to accommodate new forms of art.
- Rather than a definable entity known as Latin American art, what exists is the art of individuals
from many countries and regions
- Post war art begin with the spread of abstractions and the resulting need for artist to redefine
their cultural identities within new modes
- The recent art of Latin America has come to be relatively well known, but that ofthe earlier period
is less significant and major movements of art influenced the art of now
- What is certain is that there’s no single style unifying today’s art, the referents differ from country to country
